02

We push the boundaries with digitalization for easier and more efficient processes

Innovations that change the game: We were involved in the creation of the “BankID” project, where we assisted in preparing a feasibility study, drafting legislative proposals, and negotiating with state representatives. We provide legal support to Bankovní identita, a.s., a joint venture connecting banks with those interested in their electronic identification services.
